Cambodia - Tonie Sap Lake, 2006

13. Major fish traps on the lake

The two lines of poles seen here each support "guiding nets", which form a "V" shape, and steer the fish into a large fish trap at the point of the "V". Over 100,000 tonnes of fish are now caught each year, and one must wonder how long it can continue.
